it depends on what you feel is the best food for your dog (and your budget)
my personal preference is eukanuba for pups and iams for adults.
all you need to do is learn how to read the label.... and you should be fine.. as well as taking age, activity level and things like that into consideration.

There are a lot better foods out there.  Try looking up Canidae, Flint River Ranch and California Natural in a GOOGLE search.

The main ingredient in Eukanuba is CORN. Corn is a good filler, but it has no nutritional value for your dog.  Feed one of the foods I've just listed and I can GUARANTEE that the poop in the yard will be about half!  No fillers, most is absorbed by the dog and you feed LESS.....A LOT LESS!

Those foods are good and balanced.  I like Pro-Plan also.  However the answer to the question is really the BARF diet (Biologically Appropriate Raw Food).  This is a little more work as you must prepare his food.  Research shows, however that large breeds live longer (and poop less!) on the BARF diet.  I know it's hard though... I don't do it often.  I try to feed my Rottie Sugar and my Fila Brasileiro Sweetie the BARF diet a couple of times a week.  Otherwise I feed her pro-plan.  They do awesome on it and a bonus--they RARELY beg when us humans are eating, because they know their food is just as good!

The BARF diet is an awful idea! Research this fad, please. It's "natural" but so is not vaccinating your pets. Would you consider this because it's "natural"?

Would you eat uncooked meat, even if it tasted good to you> Of course not!

Uncooked meats can be contaminated with bacteria and parasites.

It's written on every meat package you buy from the store, along with reccomendations on handling and cooking temperatures. It's required by FDA regulation for a reason.

Don't risk the health of your best friend for a fad that looks good on paper. Common sense should tell you why this is a bad idea.

I give my Rottie, Spartan, a very good diet.....
He has pro plan with scrambled eggs and a capful of olive oil everyday.
He also gets COOKED steak once a week and I give him multi vitamins and iron everyday........Yes you guessed it, Spartan is a show dog.....He has won ukkc championship 3yrs running......."best in show" double 2004-5,rosette 1st place"stature cat." 2005-6..
Trust me you must balence a rotties diet very well and exercise is the key.......careful of the hind legs from ages 7 upwards....use cod liver oil for a happy doggy!
